U.S.A. Second Model Remington Rolling Block split-breech (aka "Dog-ear") carbine (56-.50 Spencer caliber) mfg. by Savage Repeating Arms Company in 1865This is a very rare U.S. military carbine that was authorized in October 1864, but arrived too late  to be issued during the U.S. Civil War (1000 were delivered in September 1865, the remaining 14,000 in March 1866). Remington then bought back nearly all 15,000 that had been produced, and in 1870 resold them to France (at a respectable profit) to see service in the Franco-Prussian War and very few made it back to the U.S.A (they are rare in France as well, however, due to German confiscations during both WWI and WWII). This carbine has seen quite a bit of use with the external metal (which was not blued, but case-hardened) having mottled surfaces (but no rust).  The bore has very pronounced rifling but isn't very bright, and the action is completely functional.  The stock is surprisingly sound with very BOLD U.S. military cartouches on the left side of the butt. The buttplate is stamped US and just above that is a copper plate stamped 129 (likely a rack number).  Very rare, not import-marked   PHOTOS . . . $2400. REDUCED! $1950. REDUCED AGAIN! $1750.   Antique, no FFL required
